Title: Primary bone neoplasms; Revision 2

Abstract

Canine appendicular osteosarcoma is a serious cancer that causes lameness due to its aggressive local effects and death due to early and widespread metastases. Amputation alone is palliative, with a 10% rate of survival to 1 year. Cisplatin chemotherapy (with or without doxorubicin) improves the chances of survival, but metastatic cancer is still the cause of death in most affected dogs. Limb sparing may be a viable alternative in some dogs.
